‘Paris’ dinner sold out
The Riverside Foundation for Health Care’s “fun”draiser dinner is officially sold out!
“Perhaps it was the French theme or the fact that all the proceeds will go to support the digital mammography campaign, but tickets were sold out weeks before the date,” said Allison Hyatt, who chairs the Foundation’s Special Events committee.
“We try to put on fun events that the public look forward to attending and it seems to be working. ”
The event is at the Memorial Sports Centre auditorium again this year and will be beautifully decorated in a French theme donated by Diane Gibson of Gibson Design.
Shoppers Drug Mart and the Fort Frances Legion came onboard this year as premiere sponsors while the Naicatchewenin Development Corp. again is donating as gold sponsors towards the dinner.
The Foundation also is lucky to have support from local businesses, which donated food to the dinner so Ryan Parisien of NDC Food Services can create a delicious five-course French dinner for less dollars.
That, in turn, means more dollars going to local health care.
